HUSH-HUSH is a platform for early-career queer and trans artists producing experimental work in the Bay Area. As an ever-evolving network of artists working between fields, HUSH-HUSH offers a safe space to be strange, a stage to take risks and blur genres. The Alternative Exposure grant will enable HUSH-HUSH to host Dream Bodies, a festival of experimental performance on fantasy, desire, and embodiment. Funding will help cover artist fees, documentation, and promotion. The project is co-directed by Brittany Newell and Silk Worm.
